The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 722 - My Father’s Surname is Shen  

Chapter 722: My Father’s Surname is Shen

When they heard this name, a look of shock flashed across their faces.

“You’re Ning Li?!”

They had never heard of Shen Li before, but Ning Li was well-known to them!

She was the youngest person to have published her work in the Universe in a hundred years!

When her thesis was published, it had caused quite a stir in the astrophysics world.

Even though they had never seen her before, they were definitely familiar with this name.

Shen Li had only just confirmed her identity last month. Thus, only the teachers and students at Xijing University knew that she had changed her name.

These people did not know her before, so it was not unusual that they did not know about it.

Naturally, it was a huge shock for them to hear it now.

“Ning Li?!”

Suddenly, a surprised voice came from behind.

Shen Li turned around and saw Lu Yi standing nearby and looking at her in shock.

No wonder he felt that this girl looked very familiar! It turned out that she was Ning Li!

“You… you changed your name?!”

Shen Li nodded at him lightly.

Lu Yi could not help but ask, “But… but why did you change your name to Shen Li?”

This was too sudden. She had even changed her surname?

Shen Li’s lips moved slightly. Just as she was about to speak, she heard a voice call out to her.

“Ah Li.”

All of them looked over and saw Shen Zhijin and the other two scientific consultants standing together, looking over at them.

Shen Zhijin’s gaze swept over the others before finally landing on Shen Li. Only then did his expression become gentle.

“What would you like to eat for lunch?”

Shen Li said, “I’m fine with anything.”

Shen Zhijin said, “The laboratory has arranged for us to have a working meal. If you’re not used to it, you can order some takeout.”

Shen Li smiled.

“I’ll just eat the same as you.”

Everyone who was waiting by the side was dumbfounded.

The boy who had asked Shen Li which journal she would opt for could not help but whisper, “Although Ning… I mean, Shen Li’s research ability is indeed very strong, but Professor Shen is really treating her extremely well, right? Didn’t we also follow our bosses here? However, we don’t have such treatment!”

Logically speaking, ordering a separate meal was actually a small matter, and did not take much effort.

However, that also depended on the occasion and when.

This meeting would last two days, and all the arrangements during this period had already been decided.

Shen Li… Why was she so special?

A caucasian consultant next to Shen Zhijin smiled and said, “Shen, you’re so good to your assistant. You’re making it seem like we’re not treating ours well enough.”

Shen Zhijin also smiled.

“In the past, while we were in Gran, your daughter liked to eat soy milk cake from a certain shop. So, you took a half an hour detour just to bring it to her. Now, all I want to do is order takeout for Ah Li, so why can’t I?”

The consultant’s smile instantly froze on his face.

The people around him were also dumbfounded.

This… the meaning of these words…

Everyone’s gazes moved back and forth between Shen Li’s and Shen Zhijin’s faces, unable to hide their shock.

Shen Li looked at Lu Yi as the corners of her lips curved slightly.

“Of course, the reason I changed my name to Shen Li is because my father’s surname is Shen.”

Eventually, Shen Li followed Shen Zhijin and the others to have a working meal.

After a short break, the meeting continued at two o’clock in the afternoon.

This time, more gazes fell on Shen Li.

However, it was obvious that the gazes were very different from before.

Shen Li was not very concerned about this and remained very focused throughout the meeting. After all, this was a very rare opportunity.

It was not until six o’clock in the afternoon that the arrangements for the day finally came to an end.

Shen Zhijin was staying in the hotel next to Mill Laboratory. A room had originally arranged been arranged for Shen Li, but she did not stay there.

Shen Li accompanied Shen Zhijin to have dinner before returning to the Gu family.

The next day’s meeting went on as usual.

It was not until the afternoon, when everything was over, that Shen Li mentioned the matter of dinner to Shen Zhijin.

“Dad, Grandma said that when you are free, she would like to invite you to a meal.”

As Shen Li spoke, she sized up Shen Zhijin’s expression.

“I think today would be quite appropriate. What do you think?”

Shen Zhijin looked at her for a while and smiled.

“Okay.”

Half an hour later, Shen Li drove back to the Gu residence.

She parked the car and got out with Shen Zhijin.

The butler, Qi Yang, was already waiting at the door. When he saw the two of them, he immediately went forward to welcome them.

“Mr. Shen, Miss Ah Li.”

Shen Zhijin nodded slightly at him.

“Uncle Qi.”

Qi Yang silently sighed.

At first, he had thought that Shen Zhijin would never set foot here again in this lifetime. He had not expected such a day would ever come.

His lips moved, but in the end, he lowered his voice.

“The two of you can go in. Don’t let the Old Master and the Old Madam wait anxiously.”

Shen Zhijin pursed his lips slightly.

Shen Li tugged on his sleeve.

“Dad, shall we go in?”

Shen Zhijin replied with an “Mm” and walked forward.

The Gu family had long known that Shen Li would be bringing Shen Zhijin back for a meal, so they had already made arrangements.

In the living room on the first floor, Old Master Gu and Old Madam Gu were sitting together and chatting about something.

“Grandpa, Grandma.”

Shen Li called out loud as she walked in.

The two elderly people turned back to look at Shen Li and Shen Zhijin who was beside her.

The spacious living room fell into silence.

Old Madam Gu was the first to speak with a smile on her face.

“Zhijin, you’re here.”

Shen Zhijin paused for a moment, and his clear voice became much gentler as he spoke.

“Mother.”

Old Madam Gu’s eyes were slightly red.

Shen Zhijin looked at Old Master Gu again.

“Father.”

Old Master Gu had been sitting there without moving ever since he had come in.

Hearing this, the old man paused and put down the teacup that he was holding.

The atmosphere was silent.

Shen Li said softly, “Grandfather, I’m very hungry.”

Old Master Gu then stood up, his weathered and deep gaze falling upon Shen Zhijin.

“Alright, since you’re here, let’s eat.”
